    Had a quick scroll through the first 180 items priced low-high, and exactly none met Martin's Money Mantras.

    Boots is just contributing to environmental wastage.

    Judging by the fact this thread has 4 posts it’s obvious that the boots stuff is not as popular as it was in years gone by. I remember this thread being over 100 pages long one year especially as it got closer to the 75% off which is now “only” 70%

    As someone who used to work in boots I can say its probaly true each year less and less.people shopped there and when they did it was only to get the boxing day sales.

    Plus with the annoyance of the 3 for 2 going on and off I know many people where out off shopping with them. Plus most of the products are cheap tat anyhow

    Are we thinking end of the month for the 70% sale again this year? :)
    Cannot believe how quiet the forums are about the sale in the last couple of years compared to how it used to be!

    Savvy Shopper! I've been Money Tipped!
    I haven't shopped in Boots as much, but that's because i am waiting for the 70% off sale.
    I am hoping its end of the month.
    I should there will be a 90% judging by the forum comments and amount of stock!

    I think the switching about of the discounts this year probably encouraged a number of shoppers just to go elsewhere before Christmas so Boots lost interest overall in their product lines.

    Plus the change to the 70% off timing last year rightly or wrongly annoyed people who'd specifically booked time off to go so again, Boots have lost interest there. Bit of a double whammy for them really. Plus many people are done with the Xmas sales by the end of Jan - they've either bought what they want at other stores (who by then do have 70% - 90%) of bought in the 50% sale.

    I guess last year was a bit like Next delaying their Boxing Day sale by a week without any expectation that would happen.
